6:03 pm
by the walton family foundation and promotes education reform. who is to blame and what can be done? nbc bay area has an advanced copy of the report. >> reporter: the superintendent tells me the numbers are troubling but not surprising. although there are a few bright spots in this report the superintendent says everyone shares a part of the blame on this one. >> things are actually looking up at charter school in franklin mckinley school district made up mainly of low income latino children and test scores are among the best. >> i don't think the kids make up excuss. it is the adults around them. i have seen kids come in ready to conquer the world. >> reporter: a new report shows a failing school system, a system where latinos and african
6:04 pm
americans are failing. >> i have only had an opportunity to give it a cursory review. >> reporter: the santa clara county superintendent of public schools says the numbers are troubling. in san mateo and santa clara only 22% of latinos are alleged efficient by eighth grade. when it comes to preparing them for college only 20% of latinos will graduate in four years and be eligible to enter a uc school compared to 22% of african-americans, 53% white and 73% asians. >> i don't think anyone is going to look at the report and say i wasn't aware of it. i was aware of it before i accepted the position. that's what drew me to santa clara county. >> reporter: superintendent says it should be back to the drawing board for many school boards. he also points the finger at
6:05 pm

6:06 pm
27-year-old mejia and lopez. mejia was killed during an officer-involved shooting. police say he rammed a police cruiser with a stolen car and then tried to run over the officer when the officer opened fire killing him. cannibalizing public safety, one of the many negative responses to a san jose city councilman's proposal to take from firefighters to increase police staffing. after a week that saw three homicides in five argumehours ts no arguments that things should change. but there are arguments with funding. this is not the first time the idea has come up. >> reporter: this idea goes back to 2011 grand jury report that suggested that the fire department could be a little
6:07 pm
smaller if it didn't respond to medical emergencies. but when we talk with public safety personnel they say the math just isn't that simple. when the san jose fire department responds to an emergency only three out of ten calls involve a fire. the rest are medical calls. now, in an effort to increase police staffing in a city that is on course to surpass last year's homicide rate one city councilman suggests letting private ambulances respond which would allow the city to cut the fire budget and add to the police budget. >> we could provide 110 more police officers tomorrow. >> reporter: state fire officials say it takes more than a year to recruit, hire and train a police officer. the fire chief says at 678 his department is smaller than it should be for a city of a million people and some medical emergencies take more than just medical personnel. >> many times we respond on calls it is a hazard area that
6:08 pm
our folks can work in that others cannot work in. >> reporter: acting san jose police chief declined comment for the story but the president of the san jose police union says cutting firefighters wouldn't benefit anyone. >> it seems that you are robbing peter to pay paul. if we need more ambulance people to do that we are going to be paying ambulance companies more money. >> rural metro would see more business under this proposal. it is worth noting that they oppose it with a spokesman calling the suggestion cost prohibitive. >> we are a compliment air public safety. we need police officers to provide their service. we are part of a public safety team. >> reporter: the fire chief adds that the city does not fund all of the department's staffing. the department qualifies for
6:09 pm
fema grants to bring back 78 firefighters. if the staffing levels change which is a requirement it is possible that not only will the city lose that fema money, it will have to pay some of it back. kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. tonight police are asking for your help to catch a bank robber. these are surveillance photos of the suspect dressed in a purple shirt and tie during this robbery. it happened friday afternoon at 2:00 for the afternoon in campbell. he gave the teller a note demanding money and took off with the cash. billowing flames took over at a strip mall today. five other businesses are out of commission at least for a little while. the fire started just before 8:30 this morning. no word yet on the cause. one person had to be taken to the hospital after a fire tore through a house in a mobile home community in east palo alto. two people were inside when the fire started.

6:15 pm
would move out cost plus and move in a luxury theater. >> we used to have a theater there years ago. we loved it. it was so convenient for us. >> reporter: general manager said in a statement that the company wants to make changes because we believe the addition of a theater and new dining opportunities in an open air environment will be well received by shoppers and will make us more competitive and attractive. attractive to people moving into this growing peninsula city. the project is within walking distance to the mall. the new homes under construction on the site of the former racetrack are a sign of a resurgeant housing market and the concept of an urban village. that is good news for many but some also worryt that new developments will also bring a nasty side effect. >> hillsdale can only take so much. 28th avenue is supposed to connect on the west side with

6:19 pm
>> it is going to get worst as we head throughout the week for southern cuth california and us. we have a surge in temperatures. quite a bit of warming here in santa cruz. from 1:00 this afternoon. we had 71 to 4:19 this afternoon santa cruz jumped ten degrees. winds out of the south at 1:00. and then north wind and a drying wind helped to catapult santa cruz. low to mid 70s back for the east bay. what we are tracking right now on the radar is a storm system off to the north. forecast models keep the rain to the north. what it is going to do for us is beef up the marine layer. we can't rule out more drizzle. let's get you live outside. you can see it is breezy down in the south bay with elevated fire concern.
